Chicago — Oprah Winfrey wants to make instant internet sensation Ted Williams her OWN.
The multi-millionaire entrepreneur says there’s a spot for the once-homeless recovering alcoholic with the golden voice on her newly-launched Oprah Winfrey Network.
“I would like to see him be part of OWN,” Winfrey told Inside Edition in an interview airing Friday. “It would be fantastic to hear him say, ‘The Oprah Winfrey Network.’”
Winfrey said she was among the millions captivated by Williams’ tale of redemption.
“The reason we’re all so fascinated, I think, is because it means you can be homeless on the street, carrying a sign like we’ve all seen, and this can happen to you,” she said.
It’s just the latest job offer for Williams, who earlier this week was panhandling for change on the streets of Columbus, Ohio.
